is why it goes back to my first question. the american people are begging congress and the president to act responsibly and we've got 30 days from now. what the heck is going on in washington? >> listen, the president has offered a base to start with, but it's pretty laughable. again, offering more surplus money and 1.6 trillion dollars of tax increases, that's not something that republicans can live with. but, dick, you are right we should go there with specifics and what we want to happen, but we do have a starting point from president obama. >> dick, where do you see this ending? are we going to jump over that fiscal cliff? >> i don't think so. i think the president's made an offer and i hope that republicans, responsible republicans will make a counter offer that, you know, that maybe some democrats will say is laughable and then let's get down and talk about trying to meet in the middle somewhere. there's going to have to be revenue increases, there's going to have to be spending cuts and we realize that and that's what the american people voted for in november. so i'm hoping th
republican to serve in the senate in a long time, a war hero begging them to confirm that treaty, to ratify that treaty, 38 republicans voted no on some whacked out idea. >> no. that's the danger, governor, of being dismissive. and i think you're right. but the ugliness combined with their powerful moment, they are talking about breaking the president, that's the president's word, i'll break them. and to stand up and see them vote in 2012 against disability with the former standing party asking them, the ugliness of this is unimaginable. >> horrible. >> joan? >> it really was a low moment. and almost unpredictable. every time i think they can't surprise me, they surprise me again, reverend al. so governor rendell is right. it's way too early for us to crow, to say that the fever is broken. this is a sign that jim demint thinks that he's going to strip the betina off the heritage foundation. they are really a talking point tank but now it shows the ideology rather than intellect. jim demint has not had an original idea himself. he's all about platitudes. >> take a listen. >> either way, my e

, over mental health as well, but it begs the question will this tragedy be the tipping point in the fight over gun control specifically. i want to bring in some friends of the show right now, ischwab moody mills of the center for american progress, david nakamura and matt welch, editor-in-chief for "reason" magazine. matt, i want to start with you, i've met your 4-year-old daughter, a delightful young lady and i know your politics more than most is a bit nuanced. your perspective not to over state it, your perspective is a bit unique generally. what's your take on a discussion right now? are we talking about the right things as it pertains to -- to this tragedy? >> you know, i think that there's a -- a belief and it's somewhat wrong that we don't have this discussion. i've heard a lot of people saying on twitter it's time that we finally have a discussion about guns in society and gun laws. we actually do have this discussion, not just with every one of these just awful, you know, mind-boggling tragedies, but in general. we've had two supreme court cases, major ones in the la
of this does, i think, beg for a better labor enforcement mechanism. we were talking about personal perm attempts. the prelance of the economy how do you organize that part of the economy. increasingly companies are relying on subcontracting their work to other companies which makes it difficult to organize across that. i would say some of that requires better labor law enforcement that says you can't do these kinds of things. >> but that's not enough. you can't stop at enforcement. you have to think aupt of the box about what the laws should be and about what the organizing model should be. first of all we need to tie people's direct bread and butter issues to the union and to issues of the workplace. if you don't have a union we're deeper in poverty. if you're a part-time worker you can't schedule daycare so you organize people around daycare about their immediate issues and as a union you can still do that. as a worker center we organize people around a host of issues that are outside of their workplace issues. secondly, you know, you can bargain with the employer. you can bargain wit
, because i think your point begs this question. how many single women who live alone in their 40s, 50s, 60s, protect themselves at night with a bushmaster? can i answer that question for you? none. a glock, 10 millimeter glock, can i answer that one for you? none. i only bring this up, not to point it at you, to say for all those people putting up false choices there somehow we have to choose as a country whether we allow single elderly women to protect themselves from intruders, or allow our children to be sprayed with a flurry of bullets? by the way, look what happened in oregon, look what happened in colorado, look what happened in virginia. look what happened in a religious temple. look what happened in connecticut. we can't say these are random isolated events anymore. >> it's an epidemic. >> it's an epidemic and growing epidemic. i just wonder, dan, this is the last question to open it up for everybody else, come on, let's get real, buddy, what if mitt romney had an election a year from now? and he had to be the candidate that had to defend the right of americans to buy 10 millimeter
or not her sister -- doesn't know if her sister vicky is dead or alive. she's simply begging for information. she says seeing that photo, it's like reminder of that moment all over. it kills. >> gretchen: brian was just alluding to where the six children ended up who managed to escape. jean rosen had been out for breakfast. came home to his house. here he is finding out about the tragic news and sees these six children standing on his lawn. he thought they were part of a school play, maybe it was a skit they were doing. suddenly the kids were crying ask telling him our teacher is dead. we can't go back to school. what did he do? he brought them inside his home for safety. eventually a school bus driver came in, able to help him identify the children, gave them juice and stuffed animals. called their parents. the saddest part to me about this story is that later on, a parent came to his house and said, i understand that you have some children here who survived. was my child here? and he, unfortunately h to tell her no. >> steve: there is one other story that i saw this morning in the story re
discourse. so i would beg everyone, please, let's try to have a civil discurioudi discour discourse. when you feel because you're anonymous on the keyboard you want to take the guy out you don't agree with, try to have these angels' faces in their mind because you're not helping them and you're not helping all the children in the united states. it's what i heard at the vigil and from what i heard from president obama and what i heard at the services today. everyone wants this. now we have to execute on it. >> tell us about this ribbon. >> this ribbon comes from our local grocery store. they're making them in the floral department and handing them out to anyone who wants it. the colors represent sandy hook school. these were our school colors -- are our school colors. >> i've seen other little ribbons that are similar that have a little angel. >> i know, i want one of those. >> the community, you know, you walk around, you just see these little memorials that are springing up and you see these notes from other little kids, writing messages, writing notes. some the -- two the boys were buri
